Researchers Uncover Previously Unstudied Cancer Enzyme

In a new study published in the scientific journal of repute Nature Communications researchers from the University of Copenhagen have discovered how an enzyme that plays a key role in cancer development functions. The researchers hope the new knowledge will lead to the design of more precise drugs.

New Research and Educational Programme for MD’s and PhD’s bridges the Gap between University, Hospital and Life Science Industry

Knowledge exchange between basic biomedical research and clinical practice is vital in the development of new forms of treatment. A new ambitious research and educational programme with a special focus on an advanced study curriculum will provide young researchers with a broadened perspective in medicine and support their understanding and skills of how to translate results from the laboratory into clinical practice and life science industry.

New strategic funding to metabolic research at the University of Copenhagen

The Novo Nordisk Foundation awards DKK 700 million to enable the Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research at the University of Copenhagen to excel its research, educational and communication activities and to create new knowledge about prevention and treatment of metabolic disorders for the benefit of people all over the world.

The Nerve Signals in the Eye and Brain Look Alike

In a new study, researchers from the University of Copenhagen, among others, have mapped some of the cells that send signals around the retina. The studied eye cells appear to work just like similar cells in the brain and probably help to relieve great strain on the eye in connection with e.g. detachment of the retina and blood clots, the researchers argue.

Enzyme Ducts in the Pancreas Are Formed like Rivers

With methods used to analyse road systems and rivers researchers from the University of Copenhagen have studied the formation of the pancreas' network of ducts transporting digestive enzymes in mice. The network resembles the structure of road networks and the formation of rivers. The new results can help the researchers gain a better understanding of disorders like cystic fibrosis.

Cardio exercise and strength training affect hormones differently

Strength training and cardio exercise affect the body differently with regard to the types of hormones they release into the blood, new research conducted at the University of Copenhagen shows. One of the conclusions of the study is that cardio exercise produces a far greater amount of the metabolic hormone FGF21 than strength training.
